What about eliminating antennas from the communication ring, install a circular railtrack, and install small pods that revolve around that track for a higher observation deck and 360° view, while you´re sitting in comfort , taking pictures.

If you mean the pic from post #8680, it's 432 Park Ave. And it is actually taller than Empire State Building.
